Here's one that a starving youth can live on for a week. (No health questions on this one, please.) The initial expense may be a bit much, but it's filling, makes a lot, is quick and keeps very well in the refrigerator.
1# pasta such as seashells, macaroni, raddiatore, wheels, bow ties, etc. White, whole wheat or rainbow.
Small pkg. tortillini stuffed with cheese. I use the rainbow.
10 oz. pkg frozen vegetable pieces. Italian blend, brocolli, cauliflower, etc.
Cook pasta according to directions and after draining add the thawed veggies while noodles are still warm.
Add any/all of the following ingredients as available or desired:
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
Sliced black olives
Sliced fresh mushrooms
Sliced pimiento olives
A handful of sunflower seeds
Marinated artichoke hearts
Fresh chopped spinach
If you are not vegetarian you can add some pepperoni. Probably pork or chicken would work as well.
Pour your favorite Italian dressing over it and store in refrigerator. Stir once or twice occasionally. In twenty-four hours this will be marinated and ready to eat and eat and eat.
"No ray of sunshine is ever lost, but the green which it awakes into existence needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith." - Albert Schweitzer
1 lb ground turkey
1tsbp fresh mint (chopped)
1 tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)
1 tbsp fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried
1 tbs fresh oregano or 1 tsp dried
1-2 cloves of garlic (minced)
1/4th red onion (minced)
salt and pepper
before starting take out a log of goat cheese to soften
put in bowl combine with hands, make into patties. cook in preheated skillet over medium high heat that has been greased with olive oil. I don't know for how long it will depend on the thickness but until cooked essentially.
when patties are cooked (a lb yields several patties so i cook one and freeze the rest) put them on a plate and toast the buns
add to the softened goat cheese some greek seasoning (I like cavender's the best) maybe a tsp or 2 but to taste. spread that bitch on to one of the buns or go crazy and do both. it's really good if you put on the burger lettuce, tomato slice, and a slice of red onions
you could cook these on the grill but i find turkey burgers on the grill end up being way too dry.
